Small Businesses Struggle with Technical Issues

By Staff Writer March 06, 2018

Small business owners want the government to help them more and regulate them less.

That is the findings of a recent survey by the Kaufman Foundation.

Entrepreneurs are very optimistic - not only about their businesses currently, but also about the future of their businesses and the potential for growth. This optimism carries over to their satisfaction with the current economic climate for businesses, their profits, and belief that conditions will continue to improve for business owners.

Despite their current satisfaction, entrepreneurs say they struggled the most with the technical steps of opening their business.

These entrepreneurs say the government isn’t supporting them as they seek to open or grow their businesses. The government resources that are available to them aren’t the ones they need, and many feel that the government supports established businesses over their own.

However, there is an opportunity for the government to support these entrepreneurs by being more proactive in supporting a business-friendly environment such as repairing infrastructure and streamlining taxes and regulations on businesses.
